I Finally Finished The Bird House!

It was ONLY back in March that Karla from Karla's Cottage hosted a "Bling your Birdhouse" Swap (or not). You didn't have to swap, if you wanted to create your own bird house. I immediately decided this was a swap for me and went out and purchased my little birdhouse at Joanne Fabrics. The shape of the house reminded me of the little country churches my Dad preached at when I was growing up.

OK, OK. It's only taken me 3 additional months to finish, but it is finished! Ta-Da! I guess since I decided to create my own little bird house, just for me, I wasn't pressured by time. (Gee, do you think?!?!?)

Wel-l-l-l-l, better late than never! I am happy with the results and wanted to share with you. My Sea Glass Blue Bird House, with Silver German Glitter, and a little extra bling from some rhinestones. I added a rhinestone button to the end of the little perch.

I added some pretty sheet music on the strips on the roof of the house, separated by strips of german glass glitter. I coated the sheet music with Mod Podge to protect it.

The steeple is glittered all around. As is all the trim.

The bottom of the bird house was stamped with a contrasting paint color, but I thought the result was a little dull. So, I hand painted glitter glue on the pattern and glittered away. On the back top of the little house I added a rhinestone pin top.

Well, that's my bird house story. I did get another bird house and painted it pink. We'll see how long that one takes! LOL! The Bird House story is to be continued............

Have a great day!
